The Kettering-Oakwood Times was a weekly suburban newspaper last owned by Civitas Media of Davidson, North Carolina. The newspaper, first published in 1956, was one of three Civitas-owned Dayton, Ohio-area community papers that ceased publication on August 9, 2013.[1][2] The paper was formerly owned by Brown Publishing Company and Amos Press.

The paper, which was known locally as the "K-O Times", primarily served Kettering and Oakwood, Ohio, suburbs south of Dayton.

Its most famous columnist was local housewife and humorist Erma Bombeck, whose column first appeared in its pages.[3] Ted Rall's editorial cartoons were also first published in the "K-O Times," as the paper was locally known.
